The year 2009 will mark the 150th anniversary of the publication of The Origin of Species and the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth. Not surprisingly, there is a flurry of activities being planned by evolutionists to mark these two anniversaries and maintain the stranglehold that Darwin’s ideas have held on intelligence in our world. Thankfully, the Creation Ministries International has been working on an excellent Biblical response. Its Darwin Project is a major international documentary film which revisits some of the places Darwin visited, and ideas he formulated, during his historic 1830’s voyage on HMS Beagle. Together with natural history footage from South America, period re-enactments and interviews with leading authorities from around the world, the documentary will illustrate how the evolutionary viewpoint is far from the tried and tested science fact that many believe it to be. It will investigate the man, the legend and the unfortunate world-changing legacy of Charles Darwin. The enthralling quality one hour international broadcast documentary will also include dramatic re-enactments. Check the progress, and support this worthy initiative at DarwinFilm.com.
Meanwhile, the famous evangelical apologist and erudite scholar, R.C. Sproul of Ligonier Ministries said he has changed his publicly advocated non-literal reading of the opening chapters of Genesis. In his recently published three-volume layman’s guide to the Westminster Confession of Faith entitled Truths We Confess, he says he has changed his position from what he held for most of his teaching career. He now believes that God indeed made the earth in six literal days, and not some undeterminable long eons or epochs, as some attempt to reason, in order to placate the current dominant (even though clearly faulty) scientific position.
